Leeds was one of the leading centres of industry in Victorian England. The transformation of the city in previous decades has seen change in manufacturing sectors and also to become the largest centre for financial and legal services in the UK outside of London.

Moving to modern times

The planned route of the HS2 into the city centre will bring huge growth to the city, not only in business terms, but also providing over 35,000 jobs, over 8,000 new homes and educational facilities for over 10,000 students.

Leeds is a significant employer where large technological companies such as Sky, Sky Bet, Trans Union and also the headquarters of the NHS is based in the city. Recently Channel 4 have relocated their headquarters to Leeds, bring a further spotlight on the city for business and culture.
